    2013 Giant Glory 2 or 2013 Yeti 303 WC

    So I am in the market for a downhill bike and my LBS has both a 13 glory 2 and a 303 WC frame fork kit. I am torn between the glory and the 303. Could use some help from fellow members on the their real opinions of both bikes. The glory looks pretty sweet as all I would swap would be the brakes, as I have a new set of shimano xt brakes. But with the 303 I could use all the components I already have aside from the chain guide.

    Never been on a Yeti , but i rode a 2011 Glory and loved it , pedal around a 2013 Glory and you can tell its longer , slacker, and a lil lower so i would go with the Glory .

    Retrofred where are you located. We have both of those bikes in stock at GO-RIDE.com. I've raced a Glory the past 2 seasons and had a 303 WC early last season. Let me know if you have any questions.

    I live in the Santa Clarita valley just north of L.A. and my LBS has them both. I'm leaning more towards the giant then the yeti, more bang for buck. The last DH I really rode and put time imto was a 2008 demo 8, so my real concern is how the giant would compare. Was looking at getting a demo, but the Specialized dealer in my area checked and their sold out of all 13 models.

    I think you will really like the Glory. The 2013 has new geometry which is essentially what I run on my 2012 Glory with modifications. I keep coming back to this bike because it is so fun to ride and my build is very light.

    The Yeti is amazing, but really works when you are wide open on the roughest of courses. It kind of is a WC race bike.

    Thanks Scott, am going to do test ride today (parking lot) and maybe put some money down on it if they'll do that for me.
